Spring is in the air which means summer is right around the corner. When you stop by the local shops in the MOV you’re going to come across a few of my favorite trends right now. I love dresses and my favorite styles are the wrap and baby-doll dresses because they’re typically a flattering look for most body types. If your tummy is a trouble area these two styles lend a more flattering look because they don’t hug around the waistline. I also love a good romper and beautiful accessories. Check out Dad’s Primitive Workbench and Emleigh’s and Mama B’s for the styles below.

The first two dresses are from Dad’s Primitive Workbench. This dress has beautiful embroidery detail. The bold colors are so vibrant against the black fabric. This would look great with a simple flat sandal to make it more casual or it can be dressed up as I have it here with a colorful heel. The fringe earring trend is sticking around and the gold against the black creates an elegant look when paired with this dress. When fall comes around I’ll pair this dress with a pair of denim to wear more like a tunic.

The fuchsia dress shows a beautiful sleeve and the color is to die for.  I paired the same color shoes with it to show a monochromatic look. The earrings are a blush color to stay within the same color family. 

The next two looks are from Emleigh’s & Mama B’s. This wrap dolman sleeve dress is such an easy piece to wear. The silhouette is a flattering fit since it hits the smallest part of the waistline. Another big trend is a clear vinyl bag. This neutral snakeskin print detail brings a fun vibe to the bag. I paired a simple necklace with a fun statement earring with pastel spring colors also found at this shop.

This romper has me dreaming of the beach especially when it’s paired with this beautiful jute tote bag with the tassel detail. How fun that it matches the tassel detail on the romper! The shell earrings really help complete this beach style and I added a bit of color with this turquoise bead choker.  Okay, who is ready to go to the beach with me now?
